I'll start off by saying: maybe this is a special case, maybe its just my ipod, but it really doesn't appear to be the case, and if not this is ridiculously horrible craftsmanship! completely unacceptable for such an expensive product. so i upgrade my ipod to 1.2. 5th gen, 60 gig. $400! now, scrolling through music is so sub par, so laggy that it's unbearable. i have to pause the music to scroll; simply playing music and scrolling through artists is beyond the capacity of my $400 ipod? weak! Then, i buy tetris. I remember when I was a kid, i was crazy about tetris, managed to get to level 20 once...no lag whatsoever. Nintendos are reahing the 20 year mark, and they were capable of playing tetris perfectly. Can my one-month-old ipod compare to this? sadly, not even close. tetris is literally unplayable. the game lags so bad that pieces will go from the top of the column to the bottom instantly, without the ability to move them. AT ALL! once again, weak! And the real kicker, the sub-microsoft product qulality delivered by Apple: the syncing of the ipod with itunes. When i connect to my mac, it automatically updates. Then it appears to still be connected, as ths info page stays up. I'd like to enable disk use, so I checked the box for it and hit "apply." The ipod is connected, still. itunes says "looking for ipod" and is unable to detect the ipod at all, and says that as such it cannot save my changes (i.e. enabling disk use)! Like I even have to say it by this point... Maybe this is unfair, maybe i just have a faulty ipod...are other people experiencing this? I've been using OS X for about a year, i had a 3G ipod before this new one for 3 years, and overall it's been a great change from the M$ world... now and it's great, but such fundamental flaws have really got me wondering if its more productive anymore, or just more stylish, to use a mac. Apple needs to fix these unbelievably fundamental flaws if they want their procucts to continue to be considered high-end. I'm very disappointed at this point, and find myself missing my old ipod and old itunes that just worked.
